Does Mercury in retrograde affect everyone?

"Mercury retrograde is the one event that has an impact on everyone," Miller tells Vogue. It does, however, have a greater impact on Virgo and Gemini because they are dominated by the planet. Retrogrades can reveal hidden issues with your relationships or financial situation, but it's important to be open with loved ones about their effects on you.

How does this retrograde affect us?

Mercury retrograde is an optical illusion, which implies that the planet seems to be travelling backwards from our perspective here on Earth. Astrologers think that during this seeming backward motion, technology and communication may be hampered, dampening anyone's summer attitude.

Summer in a horoscope indicates happiness, good health, success, money, travel, and new opportunities. The solar eclipse last month brought about a total lunar eclipse, which added darkness to the already full moon. So the idea of a summer eclipse is quite appropriate. The only thing that could have made it better is if some clouds appeared in the sky at some point during the eclipse.

When Mercury goes retrograde, it moves into a new sign each time it crosses its zodiacal line. So now Mercury is moving from Aries to Pisces, which means it has moved completely out of its original sign. This means that during these next two weeks, we are looking at a new set of indications with every new insight we gain through meditation or dreams. As Mercury moves closer to its zenith, so does its influence on consciousness until it reaches its highest point on August 23rd when it enters Pisces. From there, it will begin its descent back toward Earth until it returns to Aries in late September.

Retrograde planets indicate that things are not as they seem.

How will the retrograde affect 2020?

Mercury retrograde is frequently connected with confusion, annoyance, misunderstanding, and delay. Plans frequently fall through at this time, and misunderstandings are widespread. As Mercury marches backward, many parts of our lives may appear to be moving backward as well.

Turbulence in the Earth's atmosphere creates the illusion of apparent retrograde motion. 3. When Earth passes another planet, its gravitational force slows it down, making it appear to be going backward.

How does mercury affect Virgos?

If things seem a little shaky at work right now, don't worry, dear Virgo—probably it's because Mercury is retrograde in the portion of your horoscope that governs your job and public life. As a result, you may find it difficult to proceed on professional initiatives or to appropriately represent yourself at work. Mercury's presence in your career zone also affects your memory and mental processes; perhaps you've been experiencing problems with time-management skills lately.

Mercury's influence on jobs is twofold: it can be good or bad depending on where Mercury is located in your chart. If it is in your career house (the part of your chart covered by your Rising Sign), then this is said to be a favorable placement. However, if Mercury is in another sign or house, then this is considered a problematic placement. For example, if Mercury is in Taurus and its influence is felt upon you at work, this would be regarded as unfavorable since Mercury is in a malefic position.

The reason why Mercury being in your career house has an impact on your job is because you have the ability to enhance this aspect through methods such as writing down clear goals or using tools that help you stay organized. On the other hand, if you are getting mixed signals from supervisors or employees who do not follow instructions, or if you are being asked to do tasks beyond your pay grade, then this is indicative of an adverse Mercury placement.

Why is retrograde bad?

Mercury is renowned as the planet that governs all communication, according to B.C.-based astrologist Georgia Nicols. This implies that when Mercury goes retrograde, individuals may have communication challenges, technological glitches, or even misplaced mail. These problems can arise at any time during a retrograde period, but they are especially likely to occur right before and after sunrise and sunset, when most planets appear to move from west to east across the sky.

Mercury going retrograde is one of many dangers that can be found in astrology. Other hazards include eclipses and transits. Eclipses occur when the Earth gets between the Sun and another celestial body such as Mars or Jupiter, while a transit occurs when the Moon passes over or near a planet such as Venus or Mercury. All these events can cause serious problems for people who rely on other beings' feedback to make decisions about their lives; for example, those in leadership positions might make missteps because they cannot monitor everyone who depends on them for guidance.

Individuals who are sensitive or insecure will often find this type of situation worrying or frustrating. If you have no idea why Mercury is going retrograde or what a planet's retrograde period is, try not to worry about it. Instead, focus on things you can control such as improving your own understanding of astrology or finding alternative sources of information.

Which signs are compatible with Mercury?

Mercury in this sign will produce favorable outcomes for Cancer, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces ascendants. Jupiter's or Venus's aspect on or linked with Mercury will provide favorable outcomes. So will the Moon's conjunction with Mercury.

Signs affected by Mercury include Gemini, Libra, Virgo, and Sagittarius.

Compatible planets include Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Chiron. Aspects by these planets include square, semi-square, and opposition.

Mercury in motion will change its nature and therefore require different handling than when it is at rest. It is best to avoid accidents when Mercury is in retrograde.

Here are some basic rules for handling situations when Mercury is involved: If you must make a choice, choose carefully. If you can't make a choice, don't choose. Stay out of disputes. Listen more than talk. Put first things first (if you want to achieve something).

Mercury in action is quick-witted, ingenious, and communicative. It forms connections where others see only isolation. It may seem eccentric at times, but this is part of its charm. Enjoy the ride of discovery while Mercury is in your chart.
